No.

Please read the second item in the list that says: "Procedure for
submitting patches to the -stable tree" in the file,
Documentation/stable_kernel_rulest.txt. It states:

- To have the patch automatically included in the stable tree, add the tag
Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org
in the sign-off area. Once the patch is merged it will be applied to
the stable tree without anything else needing to be done by the author
or subsystem maintainer.

Does that help?

thanks,
